Peace with Justice Sunday is the first Sunday after Pentecost. Join us on June 7, 2020, as we gather for our online worship service to celebrate this important church-wide ministry.
As a connectional church, we combine our resources so that we have a larger impact in the world. In 2019, United Methodist churches gave $433,437 toward ministries funded by the Peace with Justice Sunday offering. Thank you for your generous gifts. Fifty percent of the offering remains in the annual conference to support local and regional justice efforts, and 50 percent supports justice ministries through the General Board of Church and Society
We will worship together online and renew our commitment to resist evil, injustice and oppression on behalf of the vulnerable.
